Google Street View Gallery

Here are some oddities found on Google Maps’ new Street View feature, via (most of these are from San Francisco, as it has the highest resolution panorama photos – shot with this Google car, apparently, not this one by Immersive Media):

Entering an adult book store...

A glowing sky

Caught taking a leak

A Conan O’Brien billboard

Car problems?

A glimpse into the mirror

Poice control

Street art

The Google team posing for the camera

“Taking photographs of students is prohibited,” the sign reads...

A cat behind the window (the NYT identified the owner, Mary Kalin-Casey!)...

They just wanna play, not bite, I’m sure!

Crime in progress?
